At first glance, the film concerns a group of high school friends who like making graffiti. But hidden
conflicts affecting the young generation eventually rise to the surface: conflicts between conformity and
absolute freedom, between responsibility and living impulsively, between a school experience divorced
from reality and the need to seek real experiences. The main characters are gymnasts Petr and Pavla, their
teacher Tomáš, and school director Mirka. The viewer is taken from a traditional school environment to
a dark, nighttime whirl where graffiti artists live as they wish. There, the tired, stereotyped city is
transformed before our eyes. Unbridled freedom, ignorance of all rules, and hip hop round out the
dramatic, almost thrilling story.
